    Wow. That's good to know. So why waste my time with 3rd party lenses when Fuji fits the bill.

    You hit the nail!
    As a former professional (Canon) sportsphotographer, I would have dreamed of a lens like this. A very versatile 200/f2 (=300/f2) especially for evening games under floodlight. In combination with the lowlight capabilities of the X sensor - just a dream. But on top with the TC1,4x you get a 300/f2.8 (=400/f2.8) for soccer and track&field - assuming that the AF does not loose much speed. And even if you need equivalent 600mm f4 - no problem with the TC 2x. Getting all these classic FF focal lentghs and apertures with only one lens, is just phantastic.

    Everyone doubting that working with a TC is pro - in the 90s I used my Canon 200/f1.8 even with a TC2x for soccer games and it worked out. And this was in the 90s!
    Keep in mind that Fuji is going to develop special designed TC for this beast. I can imagine that these two new TC will be a new generation and a next step.

    Everything behind this showcase lens, is getting a feet into the professional market.

    Isn’t the focusing speed and frames per second of the gfx somewhat slow for it to be considered a sports camera?

    Sorry, got confused. Thought you were talking about the new 250 mm for the gfx.
